STATE HIGHWAY ADMINISTRATION PERFORMS ROUTINE INSPECTION OF THOMAS JOHNSON BRIDGE
Single-Lane Closure to Occur Weekends between Late October and Mid-November
 
(October 21, 2009) – The Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will perform a routine inspection of the Governor Thomas Johnson Bridge in southern Maryland, which carries MD 4 traffic over the Patuxent River between Calvert and St. Mary’s counties.  This work is part of SHA’s rigorous bridge inspection program.
 
Crews will close a single lane between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. on the following weekends: October 31 and November 1, November 7 and 8, November 14 and 15 and November 21 and 22, weather permitting.  Flagpersons will alternate traffic in one lane of the two-lane bridge.  Crews will have two large “snooper” vehicles on site for use during the inspection.
 
Customers with questions about this project or any other State-numbered routes in southern Maryland may contact SHA’s District 5 Office at 410-841-1020 or toll-free at 1-800-331-5603.  SHA thanks motorists for their patience and cooperation and reminds them to use caution when driving through the work zone.
